How to Access to Discounted Fertility Medications
MHB has partnered with Freedom Fertility Pharmacy, Mandell’s Pharmacy, and SMP Pharmacy Solutions to fulfill these discount orders on medications. As part of this program, those approved for Stage I can receive up to 25% off, and those currently in Stage II can receive up to 75% off EMD Serono donor medications when using one of these pharmacies.

Clinics should note that the Intended Parents (IP’s) are part of MHB’s GPAP as well as the stage number the IP’s are currently enrolled into on the prescription* they submit to the pharmacy.

There may be instances when the clinic may choose not to work with the participating pharmacy in GPAP, in these situations prescriptions* can be given directly to the IP’s who can contact one of the approved pharmacies on their own to request the medications.

*Please note that EMD Serono products need to be ordered for the donor and/or surrogate otherwise the discount will not be applicable
